This work of art must be watched if you at least know about a little bit about contemporary art theory. Art does not have to deliver sth or does not have to had a purpose like before 1880's. This piece is a typcial surrealist exprssion. weird images and symbols created by the director. Drawing quality is not the issue here. Symbols are more important. What you get or understand from this highly depends on your knowledge level and experiences so it differs from person to person and that what makes it so unique, please give a try.

The charachters look a bit chubby and um... literary, quite hairy. I didn't really understand the reason for nudity here, but it's not offensive or gross. There is some Dalinian look in the surrealist transformation of the scenes which I think is the only attractive aspect of the arts here.

Sound: No dialogue, monologue, or any form of speach in read more

Sound- A HUGE UPSET OF A MESS! ( explained further in enjoyment)

Character- none

Never before have i had to cut the audio of anything off. It was bad enough what they did for an intro (i suggest turning volume low and keeping it low). Nonetheless, i still gave read more
